Sleepycat CEO talks Microsoft open source tactics

Found this interesting piece of interview and thought of including it in the blog. Once again let the perspective be towards open source for Windows than taking sides and losing out on the best part of Open Source :-)

Find it here...

Mike Olson, the outspoken CEO of Berkeley DB provider Sleepycat Software Inc., believes that the successful open source players of tomorrow will incorporate at least some aspects of proprietary computing into their business model. In this conversation, Olson discusses why he thinks ever-evolving attitudes toward open source will make these hybrid offerings lucrative. He then runs through an interesting "thought experimentation" to show what would happen if Microsoft ever decided to embrace open source.
